Frankfurt city street scenes and views of Heidelberg on the Neckar River, during Post-World War II Allied occupation
Frankfurt Germany Date:1946, August 8 Duration:1 min 40 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Street scenes of Frankfurt am Main during post World War II period of Allied occupation. (Opening slate refers to "food," because this was a period of severe food shortage throughout Germany.) German citizens are going about their daily activities. A truck and a car move along the street. Two military policemen walk together along a sidewalk. (They are Americans, because Frankfurt was in the U.S. zone of occupation.) Local people pay little attention to them and they, in turn, do not interact with the citizenry. Scene shifts completely to the City of Heidelberg,on the Neckar River, as viewed from left of the funicular station on the Kaiserstuhl. The camera zooms in slightly, to the area of the old Neckar bridge and the mountain slope leading to the Heidelberg Castle. It then pans from the left across the Kaiserstuhl slope, back again to the earlier views.
